The weather forecast wasn’t great for today as I went to sleep last night. So I set my expectations low. I woke up, and the sun was just about to rise – but there were loads of clouds rolling in. I decided to not bother running out (which was my gut instinct). Instead I made a cup of tea and watched some YouTube videos.
I stood up to make a cup of tea and the sun started to stream through the window. Excellent! So I ran to grab my camera, tripod and a floaty dress (the shot in my PJs might not have been quite the same), and here we are.
I’ve tried to go out and shoot twice today, but each time it started raining. So I’ve taken that as a sign and have stayed with this photo for today!
Withered is how I feel today – first day back after the Christmas break.
Usually the first day back gives me a headache. I’m not too sure why, but it always does; it could be the lighting, the fact I’m having to use my brain, who knows!
Today is no exception. I’m tired, and I have a headache. At least we went back on a Wednesday, and one day down means only two more to go!
Today I went to Thurgoland Tunnel to take some band photos, and whilst we were there I grabbed a couple of selfies (obvs)
The beast from the East was here the other week, but as I was at work I never managed to get out and photograph anything. The beast returned (or sent his cousin?) and as today is a Sunday, out we went for a little walk
Nothing like going out for a walk in the snow, the coming home to a nice warm cuppa!
When you’re just over half way through a holiday and you’ve lost all sense of time and day.
Most of Xmas we have been ill.
I was ill for 2 weeks before Xmas and I though “A-ha! For indeed I will be OK at XMas now.” And how wrong I was.
As a result of this my plan to go out with the drone every day hasn’t really panned out. Ive managed 4 times in just over a week, but to be fair the weather hasn’t been that great either.
What I have learnt is that the drone is better in wind than I thought it would be, and that I need to be more committed to panning and movement shots. I’m too focused on composition and so my footage is jerky whilst I try to correct it. I’m learning that in video this isn’t quite as big of a deal as with still images. It’s a learning curve.
The weather promised me that it the clouds would go for the sunset, but an hour before the sun would dip below the horizon line, it was still pretty cloudy.
I decided it was worth the risk, and the trip out, so I put some clothes back on (I’d had a shower and gotten straight into my jim jams from the Abbey walk earlier in the day) and off we went up the hill out of the valley to the car park at the top.
How patiently I waited when we got to the car park at the top! I wandered around trying to find a good patch of heather, set up shop and waited. The longer I waited the more the clouds parted.
Every day there has been a rainbow at around the same time (just before sunset) in the same place. How bizarre!
